that the product as a potential make or break product for the smartphone pioneer. john ford explains. >> the blackberry, it used to be shorthand for coolest phone in the world. wall street types were obsessed with them and government workers, too. less than four years ago fortune named it the fastest-growing company, and now blackberry is on the ropes with the hopes pinned on this phone, the z10 which customers can pre-order online and come pick up at these at&t stores on march 22nd. >> what happened? the mainly the iphone. when it came out six years ago the iks phone started small, unlike the blackberry and every other smartphone it had a big touchscreen and one button in front. now the iphone is the best-selling model in the country and every other popular phone looks a lot more like this than like this. the names to beat in today's phone game are apple and google who together took more than 90% of the smartphone market last holiday season. blackberry managed just over 3%. the company hopes the z10 gets it back in the game, but there are bigger challenges. the new phones won't brin

thing, the ambassador ford, u.s. ambassador ford today saying there's no evidence so far. how does one monitor it? >> first, i think you want to observe the victims, see what they have experienced. there are still some that are alive and were brought to the hospital with wounds. so you'll have a chance to interview them if the hospitals are within a location where the syrian army can get to them, which is sounds like they are. and i imagine there are friendly countries in the area who have the opportunity to do those interviews. a lot would also depend on the kind of weapon that might have used to deliver the chemicals. if it was a scud missile, that sort of signals it's going to be the syrian government. if it's something like an artillery shell, it could be ambiguous. and of course the syrian government has called for an investigation with the neutral internal group. that suggests claire claiming nothing has happened. >> brown: when we say chemical weapon, what are we talking about? is there a range of things tho are more or less dangerous that would fall in that country? >> well

offense against common decency. it's a little bit like gerry ford succeeding richard nixon. there was a sense of grandeur and -- he comes and lives in a simple apartment, takes a bus where people can come up and talk to him. to me it's encouraging as a catholic. my church is hurting from arrogance. it's indifference to the suffering of children that were abused and the inclination of the leadership to protect the institution rather than the children. and i just, i'm encouraged. >> so when your institutioned under threat, you feel you have a lot of hostility, you feel things are slipping away you've got internal problems, there's a tendency to turn inward and focus on yourself. one of the things he said, he hasn't really seed that much. one of the really nice things he said he would prefer a church that goes out and have accidents in the street than to be self referential and sick. that's exactly the right attitude. when your institution is under assault, you're feeling the weight is on it -- like the republican party don't turn inward go outward and i think his instincts are exactly rig

ford of the old days, someone who could make deals with the other side and is friendly with people from the other party. it's someone who can be the most intense partisan leader. that's also different. and you'd think that this all came from there being issue differences like over the bank of the united states with andrew jackson or the runup to world war two, stay out or go in. franklin park zoo, 1940, nothing remotely close to that in terms of magnitude yet the intensity of the conflict is perhaps greater than most times in history. >> woodruff: yet if you were to sit a partisan republican and a partisan democrat the down here at this desk they would say "we have very different views on taxes, on the role of government." >> i would say they certainly do. but you look out in the historical context, does that rise to the intensity of the conflict over slavery, for instance, in 1860? i don't think so. >> woodruff: mark hetherington, how do you see that? >> maybe so, but hopefully we've come a long way since the 1860s and slavery. >> i hope we have. >> i would hope so, too. the fact
